Parsha Shelach L’cha - Send forth


Parsha Shelach L’cha Send forth
Badmidbar/Number 13 :1 – 15 :41
Yehoshua 2 :1-24, Hebr. 3 :7-19



Today’s “parasha” should be considered with great attention as it is prophetic of a soon coming event which will touch all those who follow Yehoshua in “emet” (truth). We will see how יהוה teach us mystery, not known to the world.

If you watch TV, you will see more and more scoffer speaking foolishly against יהוה and the Torah, pretender who profess to know the true teaching heresy to those who have been blinded by the “g-d” of this world HaSatan.

For those who walk in the true, we know that the Torah is unchangeable and the truth remains forever. With that, we can build our faith on the “Rock”, Yehowah and not be moved by what we hear or see. As I am writing today (June 27, 2011), judgement as already started upon the nations, no matter what they prophesy their condemnation stand from long ago, because they have not the love of the truth.

Sha’ul in the wisdom given to him writes:
1Co 10:11 And all these came upon them (our forefathers) as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come,
He is speaking of what happened to our forefathers living Mitzrayim (Egypt), saying:
1Co 10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed, and the Rock was Messiah.
Spiritual Rock and not physical as some want to make Yehoshua been physically present in the Torah!
The Rock was Messiah is an allegory to two special events in the Torah:
Exo 17:6 behold, I will stand before thee there upon the rock in Horeb; and thou shalt smite the rock, and there shall come water out of it, that the people may drink. And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.
 Num 20:7 and YHWH spake unto Moses, saying,
Num 20:8 take the rod, and gather thou the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the congregation and their beasts drink.
Num 20:9 and Moses took the rod from before YHWH, as he commanded him.
Num 20:10 and Moses and Aaron gathered the congregation together before the rock, and he said unto them, Hear now, ye rebels; must we fetch you water out of this rock?
Num 20:11 and Moses lifted up his hand, and with his rod he smote the rock twice: and the water came out abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their beasts also.
How can we see Messiah  in this passage. I admit it is not obvious, in the p’shat level we see the Children of Israel complaining and Moshe giving them water out of the spiritual Rock! Sha’ul says that the Rock was Messiah (not Yeshua). In the first action Elohim commanded Moshe to hit the Rock which he did and the water came out.
Sha'ul allegory refers to Messiah as the living water, who like the Rock in the wilderness brought water. This is why he called the Rock, Messiah. But this is not the end, Messiah could only be called the "Rock" because he was the Word made flesh and thus as image of Elohim (Hebr. 1:3) he reflect the "Rock", Yehowah himself:
Deu 32:3  “For I proclaim the Name of יהוה, Ascribe greatness to our Elohim.
Deu 32:4  The Rock! His work is perfect, For all His ways are right-ruling, An Ěl of truth and without unrighteousness, Righteous and straight is He.
In the second action Elohim commanded Moshe to speak to the Rock, but instead Moshe out of anger smote the Rock.
Where is now the spiritual connection to Messiah?
 Was Messiah smitten two times? The answer of course is NO!
The first Rock (Ex.17:6) is a picture of Messiah who through is death (smitten) gave us the water of life.
The second Rock (Num.20:7-11) is a picture of Messiah giving us water by faith (speaking instead of smiting). Moshe reacted out of anger and will not enter the promise Land!
It is of importance to understand the reason our heavenly father want us to learn Torah. Do you think that יהוה want us to know just what happened to our forefathers, or only how the earth was destroyed by the flood?

Sha’ul exhorts the believer “not to be conformed to the world” and to “renew their mind” in order to “prove what is good and acceptable and perfect, will of Elohim” (Romans 12:2).

I have explained in another “parasha” that the only way to renew the mind (i.e. intellect) which also affect or influence our emotions is to remove what we have put inside during many years by listening to different things or doctrine which we have “freely accepted”, many times without knowing it.
The best example is how the world indoctrinate the people by the repetition of presumptions even without honest and reliable source i.e. saying that the “co²” emission from cars create the climate change. I spent many years in Germany between 1978 and 2003 we had a long period when it was almost daily a TV topic how the forests were destroyed because of cars pollution. At this time it was the opportunity for the car industry to propose a filter (catalysator) to be added to the cars, of course against “big money”! If we had believed the saying of the “wise” there would be no more forest in Germany today. Years later it has been proved that the filter didn’t changed anything.
We watch daily in TV thousands of so called “advertising”, which should be called with a better name: “brainwashing”. This is in fact how companies enforce their products in the mind of potential buyers, by repetition, when their slogans and images have reached our subconscient and take hold on our own will. You can test yourself to see if you are really free from this influence. When you go to the mall or supermarket near to you, and buy, look how you react to chose your soap, tooth paste, shampoo……..do you take a “brand” or do you chose a “no name product”? Be honest we all have grasp without knowing it after a well known brand! This is called “brainwashing”!
Sha’ul says “don’t do that, stop! Renew your mind (intellect), by taking the truth which is the Torah and put instead in your mind. When accepting the Torah as our legal way of life, we give the Set Apart Spirit substance to transform our life, in understanding, view and action. After a while, the world “brainwashing” loses its hold on us and we are free.
Myself I like to wear “Levi 501” no other one! Is it habits or “brainwashing”? May be today a way of life (habit), but for sure in the beginning when I was 15, it was because it was coming from the US and famous actors (James Dean) were wearing this Jeans.
But let us go back to the “parasha”. Moshe following יהוה, send spy to the Land of Kena’an!
My question is: Did יהוה had need to sent spy, was He unsure concerning this Land which He promised before to Abraham Itzak and Ya’acov? (B’reshit 13:14-17, 15;18)
Send forth, is the Hebrew word “Shelach”, Strong’s #H7973, from #H7971, “shalach” to send forth.
The word Shelach as an interesting meaning in Hebrew, a missile of attack, i.e. a spear, dart, sword, weapon.
When we look at the situation we see יהוה commanding Moshe to search the land which He has given to the Children of Israel (carnal man) (b’reshit 13:14-17, 15:18) and confirmed to Moshe at Mount Sinai (Sh’mot 23:31).
Exo 23:31 “And I shall set your border from the Sea of Reeds to the Sea of the Philistines, and from the wilderness to the River, for I shall give the inhabitants of the land into your hand, and you shall drive them out before you.
There must be another reason why יהוה told Moseh to send men to search the Land of Cana’ an!
Cana’an is the son of Ham, the son of Noach who was cursed by Noach (B’reshit 9:25)
Gen 9:25 and he said, “Cursed is Kenaʽan, let him become a servant of servants to his brothers.”
יהוה has given the land of the descendants from Ham to Abram (b’reshit 15:18)
Gen 15:18 On the same day יהוה made a covenant with Aḇram, saying, “I have given this land to your seed, from the river of Mitsrayim to the great river, the River Euphrates,
The prophet Obadyahu writes:
Oba 1:20 and the exiles of this host of the children of Yisra’ĕl possess that of the Kenaʽanites as far as Tsarephath, and the exiles of Yerushalayim who are in Sepharaḏ possess the cities of the South.
This struggle is still going on as the prophet following this prediction write:
Oba 1:21 and saviours (plural) shall come to Mount Tsiyon to judge the mountains of Ěsaw. And the reign shall belong to יהוה. Footnote: 1Ps. 2:8, Ps. 22:28, Dan. 2:44, Dan. 7:13-14 & 27, Zech. 14: 9, Rev. 11:15, Rev. 12:10.
The word used here by the prophet for “saviors”, “deliverance”, “salvation” is the Hebrew word:
Strong’s #H3467 ישׁע  Yasha” this word is very interesting as it is the root of the name “Hoshea” the son of Nun, but there is more to see in this word.
Moshe will change the name of Hoshea into Yehoshua (יהושׁוּע). By comparing both names we will easily see that to ישׁע   was added יהו making to Hoshea a new name. It is written Yod י , shin שׁ , Ayin ע (Yosha to Yehoshua). In the Hebrew text of the Leningrad Codex we read: “Va’iqra Moshe l’oshua ben Nun Yehoshua”
Now let us compare with the name of our Master:
Luk 1:31 “And see, you shall conceive in your womb, and shall give birth to a Son, and call His Name יהושע.1 Footnote: 1Mt. 1:21.
If we compare with the name of the Son of Nun we see that there is NO difference. Today there are discrepancy ho to call the Name of our Master going from Y’shua, Yahshua, Yahushua. I am not a Hebrew scholar on Semantics, according to my understanding, having read many information, I have decided to say: יהושע Yehoshua with the meaning: “Yehovah is salvation”, or “Yehowah save”. “Yah” is the short name (constriction poetic form) use in poetic form for “Yehowah”, and not a “short name”
Disclaimer: I don’t pretend to be right in the pronunciation and give everyone to pronounce the Name of our heavenly Father as he/she thinks it to be good. In the Last ten years have I change the pronunciation many times, so that tolerance toward other is better than to pretend to be right. (for those having interest I have a file from Nehemiah Gordon) who work in the University in Jerusalem, a scholar in Hebrew and semantic who explains very well why Yehowah is the way the Name should be pronounced! I acknowledge that my first rejection to Yehowah was that I couldn’t admit that the Jehowah Witness could be so close to the true Name! Once I had overcome this view, it became easy for me to understand.
Psa 68:4 Sing to Elohim, sing praises to His Name. Raise up a highway for Him Who rides through the deserts, By His Name Yah (poetic form of Yehowah), and exult before Him.
What does the King James says concerning this particular verse?
Psa 68:4 SingH7891 unto God,H430 sing praisesH2167 to his name:H8034 extolH5549 him that ridethH7392 upon the heavensH6160 by his nameH8034 JAH,H3050 and rejoiceH5937 beforeH6440 him
Jah: Strong’s # H3050 יהּ yâh yaw
Contracted for H3068, and meaning the same; Jah, the sacred name: - Jah, the Lord, most vehement. Cp. names in “-iah,” “-jah.”
H3068  יהוה yehôvâh yeh-ho-vaw'
From H1961; (the) self Existent or eternal; Jehovah, Jewish national name of God: - Jehovah, the Lord. Compare H3050, H3069.
It is amazing to me that Strong write for H3050, “Yah” and then jump to “Yehovah” in H3068, saying that “Yah” is contracted from H3068!
If we follow the logic we understand that “Yah” is the contraction of “Yehowah” and not from “Yahweh
Why all this details? Because if we understand what our heavenly father want us to see, we will be able to build our faith on the “Rock”, the Torah and not on man’s doctrine.
The son of Nun, “Yehoshua”, I let you decide is a picture of the One to come, our Master Yehoshua HaMoschiach who will, like Yehoshua Son of Nun leads us to the promise land.
But let us keep going in our study.
The meaning of the word Canaanite, Kena’anite is also interesting. It is Strong’s # H3669, כּנעני kena‛anîy ken-ah-an-ee'
Kena”any from H3667; a Kenaʽanites or inhabitant of Kenaʽan; by implication a pedlar (the Cananites standing for their neighbors the Ishmaelites, who conducted mercantile caravans): - Canaanite, merchant, trafficker.
H3667 kena‛an ken-ah'-an
From H3665; humiliated; Kena’an, a son of Ham; also the country inhabited by him: - Canaan, merchant, traffic.
The evil prophet Balaam says:
Num 23:19 “Ěl is not a man, to lie; nor a son of man, to repent! Has He said, and would He not do it; or spoken, and would not confirm it?
El is יהוה who made a promise to Abram to give him the Land.
What was the reason to send twelve men to spy the land?
There are many symbols in this “parasha”:
Twelve men: Twelve is the number for perfect government on earth.
They spent forty days searching the land.
Forty is the number for: Testing, repentance, and return to the way (t’shuvah in Hebrew).
Forty represent the concept of renewal – a new begins.
Forty means also that something might look like the same old thing on the surface, but its essence is totally new.
The first time Moshe ascended to the Mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights, the Children of Israel (carnal man) were transformed from a “collection of people” to a “nation”.
Noah’s forty days of rain was the new start again from scratch.
Forty weeks is the time for a “seed” to develop to a full and complete baby in the mother womb (Shoftim / Judge 2:22, 3:1, 11, Badmidbar 14:33-34, B’reshit 7:4, Sh’mot 16:35, 24:18, Psalm 95:10,)
From A.D.30 the date when our Master Yehoshua was impale, till A.D. 70 when Titus destroyed the Temple and Yerushalayim, was exactly 40 Years
Forty years: The number for change, trials, a new period
It rained forty days and forty nights during the flood (B'reshit 7:4,12, 17)
Itzahk was forty years old when he married Ribqah (B'reshit 25:20)
Forty days morning for Ya'acov death (B'reshit 50;3)
The children of Israel spent forty years in the wilderness (Badmidbar 14:34)
The Children of Israel ate manna forty years (Sh'mot 16:35)
Moshe spent forty days and forty nights in the Mount (Sh'mot 24:18)
Forty sockets of silver to hold the boards of the Tabernacle (Sh'mot 26:19)
The land had forty years rest (Judge 3:11)
David reign over Israel forty years (1King 2:11)
Forty days given to Nineveh to repent (Jon. 3:4)
Yehoshua fasted forty days and forty nights (Matt. 4:2)
From AD 30 till AD 70, the Temple destruction by Titus, send by Vespasian, there was a forty years period, Yehowah waiting for the Yehudin (Jews) to repent (t’shuvah). Yehowah waited to determine if the Kingdom would be set up. This is the same type when they were in the desert for forty years, then Yehoshua brought a remnant  of Israel into “the Kingdom”, the promise land (Greg Killian).

The temple was destroyed because instead to put their trust (emunah) in Yehowah, the Yehudin as a collective entity followed the Pharisee and rejected Yehoshua.
1Co 2:8 which no one of the rulers of this age knew, for if they had known, they would not have impaled the Master of esteem.
Kefa/Peter speaking to the council and the High Priest:
Act 5:29 And Kĕpha and the other emissaries answering, said, “We have to obey Elohim rather than men.1 Footnote: 1See 4:19.
Act 5:30 “The Elohim of our fathers raised up יהושע whom you laid hands on, hanging Him on a timber
We see clearly the parallel between natural and spiritual.
Moshe is a picture, the for-runner, of the work of Yehoshua who came to establish the Kingdom of Elohim (D'varim/Deut.18:15-19).
The first came to deliver the carnal man; le second to deliver the flesh! Forty years after Yehoshua’s departure to the Father, the Temple was destroyed. The destruction of the Temple was the confirmation that Yehowah will not established His Kingdom at this time, we will have to wait for the second advent of Messiah Yehoshua.
Moshe couldn’t enter the Kingdom it was Yehoshua the son of Nun who brought a remnant into the “Kingdom”.
Who entered the Promise Land?
Num 14:30  None of you except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, and Yehoshua son of Nun, shall enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in.
Num 14:31  But your little ones, whom you said would become a prey, I shall bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected.
Here we see that Yehowah tells the Children of Israel that there are going to die in the wilderness, while He (Yehowah) will bring their offspring into the land by the hand of Yehoshua (son of Nun). This should be taught in our Shabbot, as we learn that Sh'lommo says:
Ecc 1:9  What has been is what shall be, what has been done is what shall be done, and there is no new matter under the sun.
Ecc 1:10  Is there a matter of which it is said, “See, this is new”? It was here already, long ago.
Ecc 1:11  There is no remembrance of former ones, nor is there any remembrance of those that are to come by those who come later on.
This principle seems to be forgotten today among believers, who many try to persuade others that they know better, ignoring the Torah warning.

Yehoshua warns us that few are those who will enter the Kingdom:
Mat 7:14 “Because the gate is narrow* and the way is hard pressed1 which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Footnote: 1Or the way is afflicted.
* I have explained in a Midrash how the "narrow gate" refers to the tribulation of the last days which started at the first coming of Mashiach.
Deu 30:1 “And it shall be, when all these words come upon you, the blessing and the curse which I have set before you, and you shall bring them back to your heart among all the gentiles (nations) where יהוה your Elohim drives you,
Deu 30:2 and shall turn back to יהוה your Elohim and obey His voice, according to all that I command you today, with all your heart and with all your being, you and your children,
Deu 30:3 then יהוה your Elohim shall turn back your captivity, and shall have compassion on you, and He shall turn back and gather you from all the peoples where יהוה your Elohim has scattered you.
Deu 30:4If any of you are driven out to the farthest parts under the heavens (e.g. the Philippines!!), from there יהוה your Elohim does gather you, and from there He does take you.
Deu 30:5And יהוה your Elohim shall bring you to the land which your fathers possessed, and you shall possess it. And He shall do good to you, and increase you more than your fathers.
Deu 30:6 “And יהוה your Elohim shall circumcise your heart and the heart of your seed, to love יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being, so that you might live,
Deu 30:7 and יהוה your Elohim shall put all these curses on your enemies and on those who hate you, who persecuted you.
Deu 30:8 “And you shall turn back and obey the voice of יהוה and do all His commands which I command you today.
Deu 30:9 “And יהוה your Elohim shall make you have excess in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground for good. For יהוה turns back to rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers,
Deu 30:10 if you obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which are written in this Book of the Torah, if you turn back to יהוה your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being.
“To guard” in Hebrew it is the word “shamar” which means “to hedge around” like a shepherd who set a hedge around his sheep during the night in order that wolfs cannot approach them!
Deu 30:11 “For this command which I am commanding you today, it is not too hard for you, nor is it far off.
Deu 30:12 “It is not in the heavens, to say, ‘Who shall ascend into the heavens for us, and bring it to us, and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?’
Deu 30:13 “Nor is it beyond the sea, to say, ‘Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it to us, and cause us to hear it, so that we do it?’
Deu 30:14 “For the Word is very near you, in your mouth and in your heart – to do it.
Deu 30:15 “See, I have set before you today life and good, and death and evil,
The same Word is the Word who become flesh, the Davar
A remnant shall be saved:
Yeshayahu 1:9; 10:22-22
Yrmeyahu 31:6-7
Ya’el (Joel) 2:32
Amos 5:15
Micah 2:12, 5:7-8
Zecharayahu 8:12
Romans 9:27, 11:5
Revelation 11:13
We know that those from twenty years old and above which left Mitzrayim (Egypt), all died in the wilderness, save Caleb and Yehoshua the son of Nun.

Now if we keep looking at the symbols, we can even see more. From the twelve men who went to search the land, only two: Caleb and Yehoshua had a good report.
Caleb the son of Yepunneh of the tribe of Yehuda, and Yehoshua son of nun of the tribe of Ephraim. Moshe changed the name of Hoshea (salvation) into Yehoshua (Yehowah is salvation). Prophetically Moshe was pointing to the One who one day in the future will bring the remnant of Israel into the Kingdom.
Mat 10:5 יהושע sent these twelve out, having commanded them, saying, “Do not go into the way of the gentiles (nations), and do not enter a city of the Shomeronites,
Mat 10:6 but rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Yisra’ĕl (Ephraim).
Joh 10:16And other sheep (House of Israel/Ephraim) I have which are not of this fold (Yehudin/Jews) – I have to bring them as well, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one flock, one shepherd.1 Footnote: 1Ezek. 34:23, Ezek. 37:24.
In Yochanan 10:16, Yehoshua was speaking to the Yehudin, when speaking of those who are not of “this fold”, Yehuda, they are those from Ephraim the “lost sheep of the house of Israel”!
Two is also the number for division (b’reshit 1:7)
Yehoshua from Ephraim also called “House of Israel” later falsely called “Gentiles”, but rather “nations” (goyim), those having lost their identity, having been mixed among the nations, and found their way back through Messiah Yehoshua
Isa 11:10 and in that day there shall be a Root of Yishai (Jesse), standing as a banner to the people. Unto Him the gentiles1 shall seek, and His rest shall be esteem. Footnote: 1Or nations.
Isa 49:6 and He says, “Shall it be a small matter for You to be My Servant to raise up the tribes of Yaʽaqoḇ (12 tribes), and to bring back the preserved (remnant) ones of Yisra’ĕl? And I shall give You as a light to the gentiles, to be My deliverance* to the ends of the earth!
Delivrance: Strong's H3444 יְשׁוּעָה yshuw`ah (yesh-oo'-aw) n-f. written, yod, shin, vav, ayin, He.
1. something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance
2. (hence) aid, victory, prosperity
[feminine passive participle of H3467]
 Yshuwah: In the Hebrew text written: יְשׁוּעָתִי  Yeshuhoti "my salvation" yod, shin, vav, ayin, tav, yod.  We can see in order to render Yehowah IS salvation we will have to insert the letter "He"  ה and add the vowel "cholem" for the sound "o". The ending "my"  תִי been removed we have the Name:  יְהוֹשֻׁ֥עַ  (Yehoshua) written: yod, he, vaw with the vowel cholem for the sound "o", shin, ayin. Yeho (compression from Yehowah) save יָשַׁע yasha`, יְהוֹשֻׁ֥עַ  (Yehoshua)   
וַיֹּאמֶר נָקֵל מִֽהְיֹותְךָ לִי עֶבֶד לְהָקִים אֶת־שִׁבְטֵי יַעֲקֹב [וּנְצִירֵי כ] (וּנְצוּרֵי ק) יִשְׂרָאֵל לְהָשִׁיב וּנְתַתִּיךָ לְאֹור גֹּויִם לִֽהְיֹות יְשׁוּעָתִי עַד־קְצֵה הָאָֽרֶץ׃ ס
One of the reasons Yehowah sent the men to search the land was in order to choose either to put their trust “emunah” in Yehowah as did Caleb and Yehoshua, or to rely in their own ability, to see that they can do nothing!
The prophet Habbakuk write: “The just shall live by his faith ‘emunah’.
Faith is to trust Yehowah  for what He has already declared by the mouth of the prophets. Ten of the spies didn’t trusted Yehowah!
This was the sin of the Children of Israel: NO BELIEVE (Trust in Yehowah):
Heb 3:17 And with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?
Heb 3:18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest, but to those who did not obey?
Heb 3:19 So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief.
Sin= transgression of the Torah (1. Yochanan/John 3:4)
How it is with you and me, do we put our trust in Yehowah, or do we try on our own flesh and see the mountains before our eyes? It is said that the Psalm 91 is a Psalm for the last days, especially for the time of tribulation close to the second advent of Messiah. This Psalm is only for those who are following the condition of the first verse:
Psa 91:1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, Who abides under the shadow of the Almighty,
Are you dwelling in the secret place of the Most High, are you under the shadow of the almighty?
If your answer is without doubt “yes”, then you can make all the other verses yours and be confident that nothing can happen to you, He will protect you against all evil, no matter what comes, Bird flu, or swine flu, or other pestilences, climate catastrophe, lack of food or explosion of price, He will keep you and no arm will come upon you. Halleluyah!
The other reason Yehowah sent the spies was that the Children of Israel (carnal man) were coming from Egypt (Mitzrayim) and knew Elohim only from “having heard” of their fathers, but in their life experienced hardship from Pharaoh since more than two hundred years, until Yehowah heard their cry and sent Moshe a man like them. From this point they had an example to follow and had to choose looking at Moshe to trust Yehowah that he was sent by divine decision, or to look at their natural conditions.
This is what makes the difference today between us and those from the world. We don’t look at the natural but at the promise sealed with the blood of Messiah, our redemption written in heaven! Halleluyah!
The natural will disappoint us, we need to look at Yehowah and trust him, no matter what the situation can be, he will make a way for us to overcome:
Pro 3:5 Trust in יהוה with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
13:32 They brought an evil report…………
First of all, the ten spies reported that the land was truly as Yehowah told them, a land that flow with milk and honey. “We are not able to go up……they are stronger then we”
They saw the “giants” the sons of Anak!
The word “giants” is sometime written “nephilim”. If you remember the first time this word appears is in:
Gen 6:4  There wereH1961 giantsH5303 in the earthH776 in thoseH1992 days;H3117 and alsoH1571 afterH310 that,H3651 whenH834 the sonsH1121 of GodH430 came inH935 untoH413 the daughtersH1323 of men,H120 and they bareH3205 children to them, the sameH1992 became mighty menH1368 whichH834 were of old,H4480 H5769 menH376 of renown.H80
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.
Giants: Strong’s #H5303 nephîyl (singular)  nephil nef-eel', nef-eel'
From H5307; properly, a feller, that is, a bully or tyrant: - giant.
There are many “stories” written concerning these “nephilim” who came in unto the daughters of men.
In Badmidbar 13:33 we read………. the giants,H5303 (nephilim) the sonsH1121 of Anak,H6061 which come ofH4480 the giants:H5303 (nephilim)
The word nephilim can also be translated as “Tyrant” or violent men. Keil and Delitzsch give us following information:
When the spies describe the land of Canaan as “a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof,” and then add (Num_13:33), “and there we saw the Nephilim, the sons of Anak among (מִן lit., from, out of, in a partitive sense) the Nephilim,” by the side of whom they were as grasshoppers; the term Nephilim cannot signify giants, since the spies not only mention them especially along with the inhabitants of the land, who are described as people of great stature, but single out only a portion of the Nephilim as “sons of Anak” עֲנָק בְּנֵי), i.e., long-necked people or giants.
Many times when the Children of Israel (carnal man) looked at the natural turning their eyes away from Yehowah’s promises, they failed:
Exo 15:23 And when they cameH935 to Marah,H4785 they couldH3201 notH3808 drinkH8354 of the watersH4325 of Marah,H4480 H4785 forH3588 theyH1992 were bitter:H4751 thereforeH5921 H3651 the nameH8034 of it was calledH7121 Marah.H4785
Exo 15:24 And the peopleH5971 murmuredH3885 againstH5921 Moses,H4872 saying,H559 WhatH4100 shall we drink?H8354
Exo 17:7 and he called the name of the place Massah and Meriḇah, because of the ‘strife’ of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and because they ‘tried’ יהוה, saying, “Is יהוה in our midst or not?”
Exo 17:8 and Amalĕq came and fought with Yisra’ĕl in Rephiḏim…………………
Exo 17:13 and Yehoshua (son of Nun) defeated Amalĕq and his people with the edge of the sword.

See what the prophet Daniel write concerning the children of Elohim:
Dan 11:32 and such as do wickedly againstH7561 the covenantH1285 shall he corruptH2610 by flatteries:H2514 but the peopleH5971 that do knowH3045 their ElohimH430 shall be strong,H2388 and doH6213 exploits.
We see two kinds of people, those who go against the covenant and those who know Elohim.
Are you among those who will trust Yehowah no matter what, or do you belong to those wavering between two opinions?
I will also quote the commentary from Keil and Delitzsch on this verse from Daniel:
"The consequences to the people of Israel resulting from this sin against the holy covenant: - The ungodly shall become heathen, i.e., shall wholly apostatize from the true God; but, on the other hand, the pious shall be strengthened in their confidence in the YHWH. This is in general the import of Dan_11:32".
We see an opposite reaction with David going against a “giant” in the name of Goliath. David was confident, not on his own power but in Yehowah and knew that Yehowah will protect his people. (1 Shmu’el 17:3-51)……
1Sa 17:47 and all this assembly know that יהוה does not save with sword and spear, for the battle belongs to יהוה, and He shall give you into our hands.”


Num 13:1 and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 13:2 “Send men to spy out the land of Kenaʽan, which I am giving to the children of Yisra’ĕl. Send one man from each tribe of their fathers, everyone a leader among them.”
Num 13:3 And by the command of יהוה Mosheh sent them from the Wilderness of Paran, all of them men who were heads of the children of Yisra’ĕl.
Num 13:4 and these were their names. From the tribe of Re’uḇĕn: Shammua, son of Zakkur.
Num 13:5 from the tribe of Shimʽon: Shaphat, son of Ḥori.
Num 13:6 from the tribe of Yehuḏah: Kalĕḇ, son of Yephunneh.
Num 13:7 from the tribe of Yissasḵar: Yiḡ’al, son of Yosĕph.
Num 13:8 from the tribe of Ephrayim: Hoshĕa, son of Nun.
Num 13:9 from the tribe of Binyamin: Palti, son of Raphu.
Num 13:10 from the tribe of Zeḇulun: Gaddi’ĕl, son of Soḏi.
Num 13:11 from the tribe of Yosĕph, from the tribe of Menashsheh: Gaddi, son of Susi.
Num 13:12 from the tribe of Dan: Ammi’ĕl, son of Gemalli.
Num 13:13 from the tribe of Ashĕr: Shĕthur, son of Miḵa’ĕl.
Num 13:14 from the tribe of Naphtali: Naḥbi, son of Wophsi.
Num 13:15 from the tribe of Gaḏ: Geu’ĕl, son of Maḵi.
Num 13:16 these are the names of the men whom Mosheh sent to spy out the land, and Mosheh called Hoshĕa the son of Nun, Yehoshua.
Num 13:17 and Mosheh sent them to spy out the land of Kenaʽan, and said to them, “Go up here into the South, and go up to the mountains,
Num 13:18 and see what the land is like, and the people who dwell in it, whether strong or weak, whether few or many,
Num 13:19 and whether the land they dwell in is good or evil, whether the cities they inhabit are in camps or strongholds,
Num 13:20 and whether the land is rich or poor, and whether there are forests there or not. And you shall be strong, and bring some of the fruit of the land.” Now the time was the season of the first-fruits of grapes*. (See my explanation at the end of the parasha)
Num 13:21 So they went up and spied out the land from the Wilderness of Tsin as far as Reḥoḇ, near the entrance of Ḥamath.
Num 13:22 and they went up through the South and came to Ḥeḇron. And Aḥiman, Shĕshai, and Talmai, the descendants of Anaq, were there. Now Ḥeḇron had been built seven years before Tsoʽan in Mitsrayim.
Num 13:23 and they came to the wadi Eshkol, and cut down from there a branch with one cluster of grapes. And they bore it between two of them on a pole, also of the pomegranates and of the figs.
Num 13:24 That place was called the wadi Eshkol, because of the cluster which the men of Yisra’ĕl cut down from there.
Num 13:25 and they returned from spying out the land after forty days.
Num 13:26 and they went and came to Mosheh and Aharon and all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl in the Wilderness of Paran, at Qaḏĕsh. And they brought back word to them and to all the congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.
Num 13:27 and they reported to him, and said, “We went to the land where you sent us. And truly, it flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.
Num 13:28 “but the people who dwell in the land are strong, and the cities are walled, very great. And we saw the descendants of Anaq there too.
Num 13:29 “The Amalĕqites dwell in the land of the South, while the Ḥittites and the Yeḇusites and the Amorites dwell in the mountains. And the Kenaʽanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Yardĕn.”
Num 13:30 And Kalĕḇ silenced the people before Mosheh, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are certainly able to overcome it.”
Num 13:31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.
Num 13:32 And they gave the children of Yisra’ĕl an evil report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land eating up its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great size.
Num 13:33 “And we saw there the Nephilim, sons of Anaq, of the Nephilim. And we were like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and so we were in their eyes.”
Chapter 14.
The Children of Israel didn’t know the “mercy” of Yehowah, they didn’t have the trust (confidence) Caleb or Yehoshua had. The report from the ten other spies prevailed and became a stumbling block to them, that the wanted to go back to Mitzrayim (Egypt)
Many times in our own life, when a situation seems too big for us, we shall put our trust in Yehowah, not in our own ability. You will say, “fine brother Daniel, but what shall I do?” I understand, sometime it’s not so easy. The best way is not to hurry in but to go into prayer and seek the Father’s face for guidance, to be patient and wait to see what Yehowah is doing. I know sometime it seems very long. When doubt comes just think what happened with Ya’acov and Yoseph who waited twenty years! I do not say it will take twenty years for our situation to change, or our problem to be removed, Yehowah will do it in His time.
Numb 14:11 …………………..and how long shall I (Yehowah) not be trusted by them, with all the signs which I have done in their midst
Shaul says that all what happened to our forefathers was an example unto us:
1Co 10:1 For I do not wish you to be ignorant, brothers, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea,
1Co 10:2 and all were immersed into Mosheh in the cloud and in the sea,
1Co 10:3 and all ate the same spiritual food,
1Co 10:4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed, and the Rock was Messiah.
1Co 10:5 However, with most of them Elohim was not well pleased, for they were laid low in the wilderness.
1Co 10:6 And these became examples for us, so that we should not lust after evil, as those indeed lusted…………………………………..
1Co 10:11 and all these came upon them as examples, and they were written as a warning to us, on whom the ends of the ages have come,
1Co 10:12 so that he who thinks he stands, let him take heed lest he fall.
1Co 10:13 No trial has overtaken you except such as is common to man, and Elohim is trustworthy, who shall not allow you to be tried beyond what you are able, but with the trial shall also make the way of escape, enabling you to bear it.
Trials are common to the Set Apart One, because they are not like the world and therefore will be tried:
2Th 1:3 We ought to give thanks to Elohim always for you, brothers, as it is proper, because your belief grows exceedingly, and the love every one of you has for each other is increasing,
2Th 1:4 so that we ourselves boast of you among the assemblies of Elohim for your endurance and belief in all your persecutions and afflictions which you are bearing,
2Th 1:5 clear evidence of the righteous judgment of Elohim, in order for you to be counted worthy of the reign of Elohim, for which you also suffer,
2Th 1:6 since Elohim shall rightly repay with affliction those who afflict you,
We are persecuted and afflicted a clear evidence of the righteous judgment of Elohim! Do you understand that our Judgment is now during our life, in order that we may be counted worthy of the Kingdom of Elohim, confirmed by Kefa/Peter:
1Pe 4:17 Because it is time for judgment to begin from the House of Elohim. And if firstly from us, what is the end of those who do not obey the Good News of Elohim?
There are no doubt that the Set Apart One (saints) are judge first that when Yehowah wrath will fall upon the earth, we will escape for we have not be appointed to wrath, but unto salvation through Messiah Yehoshua (1st Tessal.5:9)
When we make the Torah our daily bread, it become substance in us and fed the inner man, to strengthen it so that in time of trouble, the small voice in us will say “remember what is written there and there”, and the peace that transcend all understanding will keep our heart through Messiah Yehoshua!
Many times in struggle we found ourselves at peace, this is the confidence we have because we trust our heavenly Father? Life conditions may be against us, but we do know that Yehowah is able to change our situation!
Verses 13-20: Moshe as a faithful “savior” pleads with Yehowah for the Children of Israel, he intercede for them until Yehowah told Moshe that He will do what he asked, is it not what Yehoshua is doing for us today?
1Jn 2:1 My little children, I write this to you, so that you do not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Intercessor* with the Father, יהושע Messiah, a righteous One.
*Intercessor: G3875 παράκλητος parakletos (par-ak'-lay-tos) n.
1. (properly) one called near (to give help)
2. an intercessor (one who entreats of behalf of another
The Torah tells us that the Children of Israel tempted Yehowah ten times (14:22). Ten is the sum of all numbers the result of these ten temptations was that Yehowah says:
Numb 14:30 None of you except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, and Yehoshua son of Nun, shall enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in.
Caleb Son of Yephuneh a picture of the righteous Yehudin who follow Yehoshua HaMoschiach!
Yehoshua Son of Nun representing the righteous from the House of Israel (Ephraim) who like their brethren from Yehudah follows also Yehoshua HaMoschiach!
When we look at the father name we can see more concerning the nature of Caleb and Yehoshua:
Yephunneh: Strong’s # H3312 יפנּה written yod, pheh, nun, He.
yephûnneh yef-oon-neh'
From H6437; he will be prepared;
H6437 pânâh paw-naw'
A primitive root; to turn; by implication to face, that is, appear, look, etc.: - appear, at [even-] tide, behold, cast out, come on, X corner, dawning, empty, go away, lie, look, mark, pass away, prepare, regard, (have) respect (to), (re-) turn (aside, away, back, face, self), X right [early].

Yehoshua: Strong’s # H3091 יהושׁוּע written: yod, He, vav, shin, vav, ayin.
yehôshûa yeh-ho-shoo'-ah, From H3068 and H3467; Yehovah-saved; Yehoshua (that is, Joshua), the leader: - Yehoshua, Yehoshuah,Yoshua. Compare H1954, H3442.
Nun: Strong’s # H5126 נוּן written nun, vav, nun sofit
nûn From H5125; perpetuity; Nun or Non,
 H5125 A primitive root; to resprout, that is, propagate by shoots;
So we could read the verse:
Numb 14:30 None of you except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh (those prepared who will return), and Yehoshua son of Nun (Yehowah save the shoots in perpetuity), shall enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in.

Do you think it is different today? The answer is No!
Who are those trusting Yehowah today, are they the antinomian Christians who reject the Torah, or “Jews” following Judaism after the traditions of the rabbis?
None of these two groups, but those who follow Messiah by faith in his name, keeping the Torah not after the letter but in the Ruach, following the Set Apart Spirit.
I know they are some telling people that the “Jews” do not need to believe in Yeshua in order to enter the Kingdom; this is heresy and false doctrine:
Act 4:12 “And there is no deliverance (salvation) in anyone else, for there is no other Name* under the heaven given among men by which we need to be saved.”
1Co 1:24 but to those who are called – both Yehuḏim and Greeks (read Helene)  – Messiah the power of Elohim and the wisdom of Elohim.
1Co 9:20 and to the Yehuḏim I became as a Yehuḏite, that I might win Yehuḏim; to those who are under Torah, as under Torah (Oral Torah), so as to win those who are under Torah (Oral Torah);
Eph 2:8 ForG1063 by graceG5485 areG2075 ye savedG4982 throughG1223 faith;G4102 andG2532 thatG5124 notG3756 ofG1537 yourselves:G5216 it is theG3588 giftG1435 of Elohim:G2316
*The Name by which man can be saved is: Yehowah, the Name given to our Master Yeho-shua, the Word made flesh.
“Save Caleb and Yehoshua” (14:30). This is amazing to see that from those above twenty only Caleb and Yehoshua will be able to enter the promise land!

Caleb son of Yepunneth a Yehudin and Yehoshua son of Nun an Ephramite: Both representing the remnant of the House of Yehuda and the House of Israel and their descendants, those who were not twenty years old.
Do you remember what Yehoshua says?
Mat 18:3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become as little children, you shall by no means enter into the reign of the heavens.
Children do not ask or doubt, they follow their father and trust him whatever he say!
Verses 40-45. The Children of Israel realized that they have done evil against Yehowah and tried to force their destiny by taking the initiative to go to fight against the Amalekites and the Canaanites
“Therefore Yehowah will not be with you”. It is foolishness to go when we rebel against Yehowah, because we have no protection.
It is amazing to read what happen to them, when we read the Haftorah when Yohushua sent the two spies, Rahab told them that they all were afraid of the Children of Israel because they had heard of what Elohim did for them:
Jos 2:9 and she said to the men, “I know that יהוה has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away because of you.
Jos 2:10 “For we have heard how יהוה dried up the water of the Sea of Reeds for you when you came out of Mitsrayim, and what you did to the two sovereigns of the Amorites who were beyond the Yardĕn, Siḥon and Oḡ, whom you put under the ban.
Jos 2:11 “And when we heard, our hearts melted, and there was no spirit left in anyone because of you, for יהוה your Elohim, He is Elohim in the heavens above and on earth beneath.
Today we have also a promise in Yehoshua to enter the promise land, the Kingdom of Elohim. We shall therefore keep our eyes on the promise and proclaim them whenever the enemy try to bring fear on us, circumstances do not stop Elohim!
Before I close this chapter I want to point to something which will become of high importance in the judgment coming upon the House of Ya’acov:
Verse 34 we read: ‘According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days – a day for a year,
This pattern has become relevant today in understanding the punishment of Ephraim, the House of Israel and for the House of Yehuda (see my Midrash “Forty days and Forty years”).
This we should learn from the rebellion of the Children of Israel who after having "swallowed" the word of the ten spies tried to go on their own in spite of the warning from Moshe (verses 40-45). Moshe was the fore-runner of Messiah (D'avrim/Deut. 18:15-19), today we have some fellow who try to bring people back to Israel under promises of great blessing! If we look what Yehowah did, and how he brought the Children of Israel to the Promise Land, we see the pattern refers to Yehoshua, in the action of Moshe laying his hands upon Yehoshua the son of Nun before he died (D'avrim 34:9).


Num 14:1 then all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night.
Num 14:2 and all the children of Yisra’ĕl grumbled against Mosheh and against Aharon, and all the congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Mitsrayim! Or if only we had died in this wilderness!
Num 14:3 “And why is יהוה bringing us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become a prey? Would it not be better for us to turn back to Mitsrayim?”
Num 14:4 and they said to each other, “Let us appoint a leader, and let us turn back to Mitsrayim.”
Num 14:5 Then Mosheh and Aharon fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl.
Num 14:6 and Yehoshua son of Nun, and Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their garments,
Num 14:7 and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, saying, “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land.
Num 14:8If יהוה has delighted in us, then He shall bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which is flowing with milk and honey.’
Num 14:9 “Only, do not rebel against יהוה, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread. Their defence has turned away from them, and יהוה is with us. Do not fear them.”
Num 14:10 But all the congregation said to stone them with stones. Then the esteem of יהוה appeared in the Tent of Meeting before all the children of Yisra’ĕl.
Num 14:11 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “How long shall I be scorned by these people? And how long shall I not be trusted by them, with all the signs which I have done in their midst?
Num 14:12 “Let Me smite them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and make of you a nation greater and mightier than they.”
Num 14:13 and Mosheh said to יהוה, “Then the Mitsrites shall hear it, for by Your power You brought these people up from their midst,
Num 14:14 and they shall say to the inhabitants of this land they have heard that You, יהוה, are in the midst of these people, that You, יהוה, are seen eye to eye and that Your cloud stands above them, and You go before them in a column of cloud by day and in a column of fire by night.
Num 14:15 “Now if You shall kill these people as one man, then the nations which have heard of Your report shall speak, saying,
Num 14:16Because יהוה was not able to bring this people to the land which He swore to give them, therefore He killed them in the wilderness.’
Num 14:17 “And now, I pray, let the power of יהוה be great, as You have spoken, saying,
Num 14:18 יהוה is patient and of great kindness, forgiving crookedness and transgression, but by no means leaving unpunished1; visiting the crookedness of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’ Footnote: 1This is confirmed in Ex. 34:7 and in Jer. 30:11.
Num 14:19 “Please forgive the crookedness of this people, according to the greatness of Your kindness, as You have forgiven this people, from Mitsrayim even until now.”
Num 14:20 and יהוה said, “I shall forgive, according to your word,
Num 14:21 but truly, as I live and all the earth is filled with the esteem of יהוה,
Num 14:22 for none of these men who have seen My esteem and the signs which I did in Mitsrayim and in the wilderness, and have tried Me now these ten times, and have disobeyed My voice,
Num 14:23 shall see the land of which I swore to their fathers, nor any of those who scorned Me see it.
Num 14:24 “But My servant Kalĕḇ, because he has a different spirit in him and has followed Me completely, I shall bring into the land where he went, and his seed shall inherit it.
Num 14:25 “Since the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites are dwelling in the valley, turn back tomorrow and set out into the wilderness by the Way of the Sea of Reeds.”
Num 14:26 and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, and to Aharon, saying,
Num 14:27 “How long shall this evil congregation have this grumbling against Me? I have heard the grumblings which the children of Yisra’ĕl are grumbling against Me.
Num 14:28 “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ declares יהוה, ‘as you have spoken in My hearing, so I do to you:
Num 14:29The carcasses of you who have grumbled against Me are going to fall in this wilderness, all of you who were registered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above.
Num 14:30None of you except Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh, and Yehoshua son of Nun, shall enter the land which I swore I would make you dwell in.
Num 14:31 ‘But your little ones, whom you said would become a prey, I shall bring in, and they shall know the land which you have rejected.
Num 14:32 ‘But as for you, your carcasses are going to fall in this wilderness.
Num 14:33And your sons shall be wanderers in the wilderness forty years, and shall bear your whorings, until your carcasses are consumed in the wilderness.
Num 14:34 ‘According to the number of the days in which you spied out the land, forty days – a day for a year, a day for a year – you are to bear your crookednesses forty years, and you shall know My breaking off.
Num 14:35 ‘I am יהוה, I have spoken, I shall do this to all this evil congregation who are meeting against Me: In this wilderness they are consumed, and there they die.’ ”
Num 14:36 and the men whom Mosheh sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation grumble against him by bringing an evil report of the land,
Num 14:37 even those men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before יהוה.
Num 14:38 Of those men who went to spy out the land, only Yehoshua son of Nun, and Kalĕḇ son of Yephunneh remained alive.
Num 14:39 and when Mosheh spoke these words to all the children of Yisra’ĕl, the people mourned greatly.
Num 14:40 and they rose up early in the morning and went up to the top of the mountain, saying, “See, we have indeed sinned, but we shall go up to the place which יהוה had spoken of!”
Num 14:41 But Mosheh said, “Why do you now transgress the command of יהוה, since it does not prosper?
Num 14:42 “Do not go up, lest you be smitten by your enemies, for יהוה is not in your midst.
Num 14:43 “Because the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites are there before you, and you shall fall by the sword. Because you have turned away from יהוה, יהוה is not with you.”
Num 14:44 But they presumed to go up to the mountaintop, but neither the ark of the covenant of יהוה nor Mosheh left the camp.
Num 14:45 So the Amalĕqites and the Kenaʽanites who dwelt in that mountain came down and smote them, and beat them down, even to Ḥormah.
Chapter 15.
Just after the debacle of searching the land, Yehowah speaks to Moshe concerning those who will enter the land, the remnant, the children of those who came out of Mitzrayim. He brings in remembrance, the sacrifices and also that there is no difference for the strangers, or whosoever is among the Children of Israel (verse 14), they will have to keep the same ordinances: “One Torah and One manner” (verses 15-16).
Sha’ul speaking to the believers in Ephesus telling them:
Eph 2:19 So then you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the set-apart ones and members of the household of Elohim,1 Footnote: 1Rom. 11:17-24, Isa. 14:1.
If so, those who were “strangers” and “foreigners” have become one with the Set Apart One (saints), and members (i.e. Israelites). How it is with the Torah, is it excluded? Elohim forbid, the Torah is established for all the members of the Household. In the book of Acts we read concerning those returning to the Torah, what Ya’acov say:
Act 15:13 And after they were silent, Yaʽaqoḇ answered, saying, “Men, brothers, listen to me:…………………………
Act 15:15And the words of the prophets agree with this, as it has been written:
Act 15:16 ‘After this I shall return and rebuild the Booth of Dawiḏ which has fallen down. And I shall rebuild its ruins, and I shall set it up,
Act 15:17 so that the remnant of mankind shall seek יהוה, even all the gentiles (goyim/nations) on whom My Name has been called, says יהוה who is doing all this,’
Act 15:18 who has made this known from of old.
Act 15:19 “Therefore I judge that we should not trouble those from among the gentiles (goyim/nations) who are turning to Elohim
Act 15:20 but that we write to them to abstain from the defilements of idols, and from whoring, and from what is strangled, and from blood.1 Footnote: 1See v.29.
Act 15:21 “For from ancient generations Mosheh (i.e. the Torah) has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations (assemblies) every Sabbath.”
There were four things required for those returning to the Torah in order to be accepted:
·       Defilement of idols (images worship)
·       Whoring (going after other gods that is fornication)
·       What is strangled (animals who were killed by strangulation, having no blood removed.
·     From blood: Vayiqra 16 concerning the animals clean and unclean whose blood must be drawn (it include also have sexual rapport during the menstruation), you may be choked, but I can tell you that in western country it is common and people are not afraid.
The rest (of the mitzvoth/commandments) will be learned during the Shabbat when hearing the Torah (Moshe) in the congregation.
Christianity has been deceived following the doctrines of the “Mother of harlots” (Revel. 17:5). Those who are not able to separate themselves from her will also receive of her plague, this is a very strong warning (Revel. 18:4)!
Since Constantine, and even before, apostasy has been rampant; many have followed the doctrines of demons.
Sha’ul warns in the book of Hebrew 3:7-19. Unbelief is the lack of trust in Yehowah. HaSatan, the enemy will do all to make people believe a lie, but the remnant will stand feast and wait for Yehowah.
The word “stranger” in the Tanak and the Brit Chadasha (Old and New Testament), have the same meaning/
Stranger: Strong’s #H1616 Ger, a guest, an alien, by implication a foreigner, sojourner.
Greek: Strong’s #G3581 xenos, an alien, by implication a guest, host, stranger.
Who are these “strangers”, are they pagans or heathen?
Gen 15:13 And he saidH559 unto Abram,H87 Know of a suretyH3045 H3045 thatH3588 thy seedH2233 shall beH1961 a strangerH1616 in a landH776 that is notH3808 theirs, and shall serveH5647 them; and they shall afflictH6031 them fourH702 hundredH3967 years;H814
Seed: Strong’s #H2233 זרע written zayin, resh, ayin. zera zeh'-rah
From H2232; seed; figuratively fruit, plant, sowing time, posterity: -  X carnally, child, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time.
H223 zâra zaw-rah' A primitive root; to sow; figuratively to disseminate, plant, fructify: - bear, conceive seed, set with, sow (-er), yield.

Isa 56:6 Also the sonsH1121 of the stranger,H5236 that join themselvesH3867 toH5921 יהוה,H3068 to serveH8334 him, and to loveH157 (H853) the nameH8034 of יהוה,H3068 to beH1961 his servants,H5650 every oneH3605 that keepethH8104 the sabbathH7676 from pollutingH4480 H2490 it, and taketh holdH2388 of my covenant;H128
The strangers who love Yehowah are members of the Household of Elohim whether been of the seed of Abraham (descendants) or having been joined through faith in Yehoshua to the Household.
If now in Messiah those coming to the faith, have been made partaker of the covenant which is the Torah, and share the same Household with Yehowah’ Set Apart One, how come that today, Christianity vehemently reject the Torah and all what is commanded by Elohim in order to follow the doctrines of men?
Could it be that is the great delusion spoken off by Sha’ul to the Thessalonians (2nd Tessal. 2:9-12)?
What does Yehowah says: “The heart is deceitful above all, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I Yehowah search the heart (will) and try the reins (emotion) even to give every man according to the fruit of his doing (Yrmeyahu 17:9-10)
Verses 37-41.
And it shall be for you for a Tzitziot, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of יהוה  and do them……….
It is interesting to read that the commandments of Tzitziot  is given just after sinning unintentionally (verse 29) or through ignorance, and right after the man breaking the Shabbat.
The Children of Israel (carnal man) didn’t had the Ruach HaQodesh (Set Apart Spirit), they had the Tzitziot as reminder. I know some will argue with me, but fact is that the Ruach HaQodesh came upon Moshe, David, and others in order to lead them in their decision

1Sa 11:6 And the Spirit of Elohim came upon Sha’ul mightily…..
1Sa 16:13 And Shemu’ĕl took the horn of oil and anointed him in the midst of his brothers. And the Spirit of יהוה came upon Dawiḏ from that day and onwards.
Isa 11:2 The Spirit of יהוה shall rest upon Him
Isa 42:1 “See, My Servant whom I uphold, My Chosen One My being has delighted in! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He brings forth right-ruling to the nations.
Joe 2:28 “And after this it shall be that I pour out My Spirit on all flesh.
Mat 12:18 “See, My Servant whom I have chosen, My Beloved in whom My being did delight. I shall put My Spirit upon Him, and He shall declare right-ruling to the nations.
When the change did come? Shavuot 30 C.E.
Joh 15:26 “And when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of the Truth, who comes from the Father, She shall bear witness of Me,
Joh 16:13 “But when She comes, the Spirit of the Truth, She shall guide you into all the truth.
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak.
Act 5:32And we are His witnesses to these matters, and so also is the Set-apart Spirit whom Elohim has given to those who obey Him.”
Rom 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, this one is not His

Num 15:10 and bring as the drink offering half a hin of wine as an offering made by fire, a sweet fragrance to יהוה.

Num 15:16One Torah and one right-ruling is for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.’ ”
Num 15:17 And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 15:18 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and say to them, ‘When you come into the land to which I bring you,
Num 15:19 then it shall be, when you eat of the bread of the land, that you present a contribution to יהוה.

Num 15:24 then it shall be, if it is done by mistake, without the knowledge of the congregation, that all the congregation shall prepare one young bull as a burnt offering, as a sweet fragrance to יהוה, with its grain offering and its drink offering, according to the right-ruling, and one male goat as a sin offering.
Num 15:25 ‘Then the priest shall make atonement for all the congregation of the children of Yisra’ĕl, and it shall be forgiven them, for it was by mistake. And they shall bring their offering, an offering made by fire to יהוה, and their sin offering before יהוה, for their mistake.

Num 15:29 ‘For him who does whatever by mistake there is one Torah, both for him who is native among the children of Yisra’ĕl and for the stranger who sojourns in their midst.

Num 15:31 ‘Because he has despised the word of יהוה, and has broken His command, that being shall certainly be cut off, his crookedness is upon him.
Num 15:32 and while the children of Yisra’ĕl were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath day.
Num 15:33 and those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Mosheh and to Aharon, and to all the congregation.
Num 15:34 and they put him in under guard, because it had not been declared what should be done to him.
Num 15:35 and יהוה said to Mosheh, “The man shall certainly be put to death, all the congregation stoning him with stones outside the camp.”
Num 15:36 and all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him with stones, as יהוה commanded Mosheh, and he died.
Num 15:37 and יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying,
Num 15:38 “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl, and you shall say to them to make tzitziyot1 on the corners of their garments throughout their generations, and to put a blue cord in the tzitzit1 of the corners. Footnote: 1See Explanatory notes - “Tzitzit” - plural Tzitziyot.
Num 15:39 “And it shall be to you for a tzitzit, and you shall see it, and shall remember all the commands of יהוה and shall do them, and not search after your own heart and your own eyes after which you went whoring,
Num 15:40 so that you remember, and shall do all My commands, and be set-apart unto your Elohim.
Num 15:41 “I am יהוה your Elohim, who brought you out of the land of Mitsrayim, to be your Elohim. I am יהוה your Elohim.”


HAFTORAH



Jos 2:1 and Yehoshua son of Nun secretly sent out two men from Shittim to spy, saying, “Go, see the land, and Yeriḥo.” And they went, and came to the house of a woman, a whore, and her name was Raḥaḇ, and they lay down there.
Jos 2:2 but it was reported to the sovereign of Yeriḥo, saying, “See, men from the children of Yisra’ĕl have come here tonight to search out the land.”
Jos 2:3 and the sovereign of Yeriḥo sent to Raḥaḇ, saying, “Bring out the men who have come to you, who have entered your house, for they have come to search out all the land.”
Jos 2:4 but the woman had taken the two men and hid them. So she said, “The men came to me, but I did not know where they were from.
Jos 2:5 “Then it came to be as the gate was being shut, when it was dark, that the men went out. I do not know where the men went. Pursue them quickly, so that you overtake them.”
Jos 2:6 but she had brought them up to the roof and hidden them with the stalks of flax, which she had laid out on the roof.
Jos 2:7 and the men pursued them by the way to the Yardĕn, to the fords. And they shut the gate afterwards as soon as the pursuers had gone out.
Jos 2:8 And before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof,
Jos 2:9 and she said to the men, “I know that יהוה has given you the land, and that the fear of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land melt away because of you.
Jos 2:10 “For we have heard how יהוה dried up the water of the Sea of Reeds for you when you came out of Mitsrayim, and what you did to the two sovereigns of the Amorites who were beyond the Yardĕn, Siḥon and Oḡ, whom you put under the ban.
Jos 2:11 “And when we heard, our hearts melted, and there was no spirit left in anyone because of you, for יהוה your Elohim, He is Elohim in the heavens above and on earth beneath.
Jos 2:12 “And now, please swear to me by יהוה, since I have shown you kindness, that you also show kindness to my father’s house, and shall give me a true token,
Jos 2:13 and shall spare my father, and my mother, and my brothers, and my sisters, and all that they have, and shall deliver our lives from death.”
Jos 2:14 And the men said to her, “Our lives for yours, if you do not expose this matter of ours, then it shall be, when יהוה has given us the land, that we shall treat you in kindness and truth.”
Jos 2:15 So she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall and she dwelt on the wall.
Jos 2:16 and she said to them, “Go to the mountain, lest the pursuers come upon you. And you shall hide there three days, until the pursuers have returned, and afterwards go on your way.”
Jos 2:17 and the men said to her, “We are released from this oath of yours which you have made us swear,
Jos 2:18 unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, and your mother, and your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home.
Jos 2:19 “And it shall be that anyone who goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood is on his own head, and we are innocent. And anyone who is with you in the house, his blood is on our head if a hand is laid on him.
Jos 2:20And if you expose this matter of ours, then we shall be released from your oath which you made us swear.”
Jos 2:21 and she said, “Let it be according to your words.” And she sent them away, and they went. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window.
Jos 2:22 so they left and came to the mountain, and stayed there three days until the pursuers returned. And the pursuers sought them in all the way, but did not find them.
Jos 2:23 Then the two men returned and came down from the mountain, and passed over. And they came to Yehoshua son of Nun, and related to him all that had befallen them.
Jos 2:24 and they said to Yehoshua, “Truly יהוה has given all the land into our hands, and also, all the inhabitants of the land have melted away because of us.”


Heb 3:7 Therefore, as the Set-apart Spirit says, “Today, if you hear His voice,
Heb 3:8 do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, in the day of trial in the wilderness,
Heb 3:9 where your fathers tried Me, proved Me, and saw My works forty years.
Heb 3:10 “Therefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, ‘they always go astray in their heart, and they have not known My ways.
Heb 3:11 “As I swore in My wrath, ‘If they shall enter into My rest...’ ”1 Footnote: 1Ps. 95:7-11.
Heb 3:12 Look out, brothers, lest there be in any of you a wicked heart of unbelief in falling away from the living Elohim,
Heb 3:13 but encourage one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened by the deceivableness of sin.
Heb 3:14 For we have become partakers of Messiah if we hold fast the beginning of our trust firm to the end,
Heb 3:15 while it is said, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.”
Heb 3:16 For who, having heard, rebelled? Was it not all who came out of Mitsrayim, led by Mosheh?
Heb 3:17 And with whom was He grieved forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose corpses fell in the wilderness?
Heb 3:18 And to whom did He swear that they would not enter into His rest, but to those who did not obey?
Heb 3:19 So we see that they were unable to enter in because of unbelief.

  • - First ripe grapes: Hebrew bekuri onabyim, is directly connected to the Firstfruits of the Fall Harvest which bring us to the feast of Succoth!
Let us see what these first ripe grapes have to do with us. Grapes come from the vineyard:
We need to know more concerning vineyard, wine in order to understand:
Isa 5:1 now will I sing to my well beloved a song of my beloved touching his vineyard. My well beloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill:
Isa 5:2 and he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should bring forth grapes, and it brought forth wild grapes.
Isa 5:3 and now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard………….
We see that the vineyard has be planted by Yehowah:
Isa 5:4 what could have been done more to my vineyard that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild* grapes?
Wild grapes (Isa.5:4): Whenever the term “wild” is used it mostly refers to “unclean” animals or trees or what is outside the will of Elohim.(b’reshit/Gen.16:12, 2 King 4:39, 14:9, Yob 11:12, 39:15, Psalm 80:13, Isa.13:21…..)
Hos 13:8  I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
  In the Brit Hachadasha:
Act 11:6 upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
Mar 1:13 and he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Rom 11:24 for if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?
Back to the prophet Yeshayahu:
Isa 5:5 and now go to; I (YHWH) will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:
Isa 5:6 and I will lay it waste: it shall not be pruned (read Yochanan/John 15:1-6), nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it.
Isa 5:7 for the vineyard of YHWH of hosts is the house of Israel*, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
*The House of Israel (Ephraim and Yehudah)
Isa 5:8  Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
Isa 5:9 In mine ears said YHWH of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant.

Yeshoshua gives a parable concerning a vineyard:
Mat 21:33 hear another parable: There was a certain householder (Yehowah), which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen (Pharisee), and went into a far country:
Mat 21:34 and when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants (prophets) to the husbandmen (Pharisee), that they might receive the fruits of it.
Mat 21:35 and the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
Mat 21:36 again, he sent other servants (prophets) more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
Mat 21:37 but last of all he sent unto them his son (Yehoshua), saying, they (the Pharisee) will reverence my son.
Mat 21:38 but when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him (sound like Yoseph and his brethren read: b’reshit 37:13-24) , and let us seize on his inheritance.
Mat 21:39 and they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
Mat 21:40 when the master therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
Mat 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen (the righteous following Moschiach), which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
Mat 21:42  Yehoshua saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is YHWH's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?
Mat 21:43  Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of Elohim shall be taken from you (Pharisee), and given to a nation (ethnos, group of people) bringing forth the fruits thereof……..
Mat 21:45 and when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

Now with this in mind we should be able to understand what Yochanan/John says in the book of revelation. After that I will explain the work of the winepress:
Rev 14:18 and another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.(It is the harvest time or fall feast!!!!)
Rev 14:19 and the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of YHWH.
Rev 14:20 and the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

In the time of harvest when the grapes are brought  into the barns the juice of the grape come out by a natural process, the grapes on the top pressing the grapes below, so that the juice of the clusters is realized without men intervention. It is called the “First choice juice”!
 The second process is what in the scriptures is called the “wrath of Elohim”, the release of the juice by violence. The grapes are brought into the winepress (see picture), the plate on the top laid on the grapes and the process of releasing the “second juice” is by pressure. Men bring the heavy plate on the grapes on the top to squeeze the clusters, bringing slowly the plate down by a mechanical process around the middle spiral until no more juice come out. The boards forming the winepress have a small opening which let the juice run out of the wine press. 



Wild grapes (Isa.5:4): Whenever the term “wild” is used it mostly refers to “unclean” animals or trees or what is outside the will of Elohim.(b’reshit/Gen.16:12, 2 King 4:39, 14:9, Yob 11:12, 39:15, Psalm 80:13, Isa.13:21…..)
Hos 13:8  I will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them.
  In the Brit Hachadasha:
Act 11:6 upon the which when I had fastened mine eyes, I considered, and saw fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
Mar 1:13 and he was there in the wilderness forty days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Rom 11:24 for if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

May Yehovah bless you as you follow Yehoshua HaMoschiach in the path of life, the Torah.
